    Default Title Card Graphics (Comic Style/Poster Style)

    I made this for another DJ mix by Mickey Beam. For the type, I wanted to finally do something I've wanted to do for a long time, which is something inspired by 80's/90's japanese game logos and kaiju movie logos with extremely dynamic and 3D style type. Because of this, the artwork itself went towards the monster movie vibe. I used a similar palette to the last one that was suggested by Mickey since he seems to like those colors.

    Interestingly, I think, I did all of the drawing within Xara itself, but all with a mouse, which is quite out of the norm for me, since I like wielding a pen. It still turned out okay, I think.

    I may make a few minor changes to it, but overall, this is fairly close to finished if not the final version, though I do need to rearrange things into a square version since some of the places the mix will appear at use those dimensions instead of the YT 16:9.

    I like the 4 colour palette very much and the dynamism of the lettering.

    It's not really a style I like but it looks very good, very professional.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    I'm with Boy on this one and it does look great... just one thing, when I look directly at the hand held vinyl it keeps switching perspective on me.. maybe that's just my eyes/brain/whatever....

    Hmmm...maybe I can distort it a little instead of using perfect ellipses.
